Abstract

Chromosomes are very important part of eukaryotic cells. They carry genetic information (DNA) and provide transfer from parents to the offspring. Centromere and kinetochore are very important part of eukaryotic chromosome because they make link between chromosome and mitotic spindle and thus provide chromosome segregation. In this seminar specific architecture of centromere is explained. It also describes kinetochore architecture that provides kinetochore movement and thus chromosomes along mitotic spindle microtubules. At the end are an overview of neocentromerisation process and the role of centromere, kinetochore and neocentromeres in the chromosomes segregation disorders.
